30 December, 2023

A big thank you for the children, teachers and families of   St Annes (Sarina)  St Brendan’s (Rural View)  St Johns (Walkerston)  St Marys (Mackay) for the wonderful donations for our Christmas shoebox appeal.

Also a big shoutout  to the ctudents, teachers and friends of the following schools who assisted in making bags to put the seafarers goodies in: Catherine McAuley, Holy Spirit, St Patricks(Mercy) along with the devoted Vicki Heggie and Sr Denise Hinton.

A Special mention to the Blanket Buddies in Bundaberg who lovingly knitted scarfs & beanies again this year.  Also many thanks to the many parishioners who have visited and donated towards our Christmas seafarers Appeal.

If you are wondering what it means to the crew to receive such items:

On behalf of all the officers and crew of M/T Cajun Sun, We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Stella Maris Mackay, and most specially to the children who made an effort in making the bags for us, for the early Christmas gifts to each one of us which had certainly brought out a lot of smiles from my crew.

Wishing you all in advance A Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to one and all.

Stay safe. God bless us all.
